This is a great idea from IEEE, a global “design a computer game ” based on EO data. From the web page:

Create a game for players to use Earth Observations of our environment for solving issues of the world around us. Show how real-world events affect the Earth and impact people. Whether it is flooding or drought, changes in energy or climate, work with our experts who can help you with data and impacts to create ideas for a game and even a playable prototype.

There’s two ways to win prizes! Win with a game concept idea. Or win with a playable computer game you designed and created! This is a two-phase competition designed for all students, engineers or professionals.

Deadline is Aug10, would be a great competion for secondary school kids for the concept, or 3rd level computer students for an actual working game. More Info

Another automatic service (one of an increasing number in the gmes style this is accessed through the SSE of the ESA EO portal) has been launched , producing snow cover from MODIS. The service is prodcued by Indra Espacio and it’s free to registered SSE users. HAve a look around the SSE site there are other service, producing free output and offering free image processing that might be useful. More Info
